Rich Fall Colours Along The Path

Continuing on where I left off yesterday, here we have more fall colours in Major's Hill Park.

The north end of the park descends down a slope, seen here. The National Gallery of Canada and Notre Dame lie beyond the park. The flowerbeds here are at their height, with the plants being dug up in October to get the beds ready for tulip bulb planting.

Departing the park, I crossed to the Peacekeeping Monument, commemorating Canadian peacekeepers. It lies between the park, the Gallery, and Notre Dame. Bushes that surround the monument were turning from green to a bright red.

These colours were in a tree near Notre Dame.

And just up the street along Sussex Drive, the bulk of the Royal Canadian Mint loomed against the sky. Fall colours at the far end caught my eye.


  1. It must have a lovely and satisfying walk. Beautiful fall colours.

  2. The spires in the distance...awe.

  3. Hello,
    Beautiful views of the Autumn colors, the trees and bushes are lovely.
    Take care, enjoy your day! Happy weekend!

  4. Ah! Where the money is made. No wonder there's a high fence. :-)

  5. ...enjoy the colors while you can!

  6. You know, when I contemplate Canada's peacekeeping role, I cannot help but feel that it was pretty much for naught. The antagonists were kept aside for the moment, but none of the underlying malaise was resolved, and those parts of the world are still zones of simmering hostility to this day.

  7. Nature sure knows how to display beauty!

  8. @Nancy: very pleasant conditions.

    @Jan: that they are.

  12. So many blooms amid the fall leaves. Beauty on another level.

  13. Sure brightens up your walking path.

  14. You have yet lovely autumn color and much green. I like a lot these red leaves.

  15. Excelentes colores de una gran estación.
